I can't imagine inheriting that responsibility, can you?

Really old!!!
Glad you like them, David. :)
LOL, Grammazoo. I was thinking the same thing. If you killed it, can you imagine how bad that you'd feel!? I'm not Japanese, so I don't have to worry about inheriting a 300 year old bonsai tree.

I would LOVE to inherit one of these beauties.
I'm growing a couple of Bristlecone Pines that are about 15 years old so far, but can live up to 4000 - 5000 years old in their native terrain (White Mtns, Nevada)(I think!) and at an altitude of 9000 feet. At low altitude (as I am, 300 feet above sea level) these trees tend to die at a young age - 2-3 hundred years old.
Considering I'm 50 years old, I don't think I'll see one of my "babies" die.
